St. Pius X Captures 2013-14 AAA Regions Director's Cup
June 5th, 2014

St. Pius X Catholic High School has been named the 2013-14 AAA Regions Director’s Cup winner for the fifth time in six years. Both the boys’ and girls’ athletic programs swept the individual sport Director’s awards as well.  Awarded by the Georgia Athletic Directors Association (GADA), the Cup recognizes the athletic departments in each Georgia High School Association
classification who have excelled in the previous school year.

“Everyone associated with St. Pius X is thrilled with the recent announcement that our athletic program was once again named the recipient of the Georgia Athletic Directors Association “Director’s Cup” signifying that we were the best overall program in the state in our classification. This award is significant as it validates the effort put forth by our coaches in maintaining an exemplary program in every sport,” said St. Pius X Principal Steve Spellman.

The award caps off one of the most successful athletic years in school history as the Golden Lions won eight state championships and three state runner-up trophies. Boys’ cross country won the AAA state championship for the fourth consecutive year while girls’ soccer took home its fifth crown in six seasons. Boys’ soccer, girls’ basketball and boys’ track each won state championships for the second consecutive season. Boys’ swimming and volleyball captured the first state titles for their sports as boys’ tennis took its fourth overall crown. Girls’ track, girls’ tennis and girls’ cross country finished as state runners-up. Girls’ lacrosse ended its season in the semi-finals and football finished as quarterfinalists. Boys’ golf and girls’ swimming finished in third place at their respective state championship events. In total, every athletic program qualified for the state playoffs this school year.

According to the GADA Web site, the purpose of the Regions Director’s Cup is to recognize those athletic departments in all
GHSA classifications who have excelled and shown superior performance.  Since the 1999-2000 school year, the GADA has presented this award annually. Award winning schools will receive a Regions Director’s Cup Trophy and a Wall Banner. Beginning with the 2002-2003 school year, the award has been presented to the top male program, top female program, and top overall program in each classification.
